I have been a long time fan of dressing up a casual tee with a large ornate necklace. The contrast of the fancy necklace against a gray tee really elevates the outfit and compliments it perfectly. I decided that the remaining accessories should be a little edgier: a pointy leaf ring, metal-heeled booties and a sleek black clutch. Finishing off the outfit with the ever so versatile black blazer.
This ensemble was particularly perfect going to a show to see The Sounds. If you are unfamiliar with The Sounds, I highly recommend you check them out. They are a Swedish Indie Rock band that produces dancey songs with lyrics that almost anyone can relate to. The bonus is that the lead singer, Maja, is pretty bad ass! Check out the video below for a sample.

The weather while on vacation last week in Cape Cod, as I mentioned here, was pretty ideal. The days were sunny, warm and the humidity very low. The nights were a bit cooler, so I took advantage of this weather by wearing some Fall Transitional pieces. This chambray shirt is a recent purchase and I can already tell it is will be on heavy rotation. It has a boyfriend cut, allowing for a more relaxed and easy going wear. Pairing it with red cords and super comfortable wedges, made for one easy to wear outfit for one awesome night out!

Getting to wear 1 piece various ways is like hitting the jackpot. It feels as though you are truly getting the most out of your investment, but thinking of ways to mix and match can be challenging. When doing Wardrobe Consultations, clients often ask, “what is another way I can wear this?” Referring to a top, skirt, pants etc.. that they would like to re-purpose and wear differently. I love answering this question. It helps them see their wardrobe pieces in a new light, and helps them get the most out of their existing wardrobe!
Below is an example of how to re-wear an item that may seem to have only 1 outfit option. Mixing up patterned pieces beyond the usual combinations can be a bit intimidating, but currently I love throwing out the common suspects and throwing in some twists. Bright colors look amazing against muted color patterned shorts, as does another pattern that is complimentary, but does not compete with the original item. I think these shorts are completely perfect for a BBQ, the Beach or even a Night Out!

When it comes to this time of year I tend to change up my outfits. The warmer weather and super sunny days have allowed me to trade in my cardigans, jeans and ankle boots in exchange for; tanks, flat sandals and cropped pants. I am completely embracing and loving this change. This outfit has been so versatile for day or night, only a quick swap of accessories and shoes is needed.

I bought these wedges on a whim and they proved to be nothing short of fabulous!
